We stayed here in June 2014 while visiting our daughter at the University of Catania. The apartment is in a fantastic location. It is close to lots of areas of interest and there is a lively buzz but the apartment is peaceful and quiet.
The apartment is beautifully furnished and has some gorgeous artwork. Furniture and fittings are all elegant. There is a huge tv, excellent wifi connection and some wonderful books.
The kitchen is wonderfully equipped and there are fabulous food markets very close by although I confess that we ate out (tired and cranky working mother). There are so many fantastic places to eat in Catania. One of them is a few yards from the front door of the apartment.
The apartment has two lovely terraces where you have fabulous views; in one direction, Etna and in the other the Castello. Or you can lie back and watch swallows swooping across the sky.
The bathrooms are beautiful, really beautiful.
Massimiliano was a wonderful host; easy to get in touch with but unobtrusive. He gave great advice for our stay.
Great place for a visit to this vibrant, buzzy and very real city.

Liked best: elegance of layout

“A perfect place”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this stunning, stylishly designed apartment, kitted out with all mod cons. Every evening we would take the 5-minute stroll to one of the many 'Pasticcerias' near the dome to buy the kids delicious Italian ice cream, or we would simply relax on the marvellous rooftop terrace enjoying the view of the lit medieval castle located right opposite. Perfect location!

Taking time to research the best self catering accommodation for our 4 day trip to Catania definitely paid off here..we were amazed on entering this fabulous apartment. We received a warm welcome from Massimo & were made to feel very much at home during our stay. He was extremely helpful & attentive in advising us on the best places to visit and music venues/bars to head to.

Both the roof terraces with their unique vantage points of the castle on one side & stunning views of Etna on the other were a perfect place to relax after a day out in & around the city.

We would thoroughly recommend this apartment, no matter what your reason for visiting this city: it is the perfect base from which to explore Catania's many attractions.

What an AMAZING property! Beautiful, well located and well appointed apartment. EVERY convenience. Masimiliano is very accommodating, always available for questions. The pictures do not do it justice, and the views from the many windows and decks are amazing. I can't recommend it highly enough. WORTH EVERY PENNY. I will definitely stay here again when I return.

“Very nice and luxury apartment with excellent views”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The apartment is great and the location is excellent in the center of Catania.
Sights, restaurants, bars and the shopping streets are very close (5 mins walking). The beach (nice beachbars/lidos) is 5-10 minutes driving by car.
The apartment has a huge living/dining room, kitchen and 2 terraces with very nice views. The kitchen is fully equipped. It's easy to make your own espresso, fruit juice or barbecue.
The owner Massimiliano has a great collection of music and movies, of which you can make use of.
